IFSEC International 2021

Be part of one of the world’s largest and most prestigious events for the global integrated security industry. IFSEC International 2021 will be made up of a month-long virtual event in June – IFSEC Connect – followed by an in-person event from 12-14 July at ExCeL, London.

As usual, the events (both virtual and in-person) will take place alongside FIREX International (fire safety), Safety & Health Expo, Intelligent Buildings, Workplace Wellbeing Show and Facilities Show (facilities management). Registration is free and attendees will benefit from access to content from all the events!

Why attend IFSEC International?

  • Meet leading suppliers of security products from across the entire security supply chain – either digitally or in-person
  • Meet industry organisations such as the BSIA and SSAIB to expand your network
  • See products put to the test in on-stand demonstrations and live virtual Tech Talks sessions to help you make the right purchasing decisions
  • Discover insights and thought leadership from industry experts with multiple content-led panel discussions at IFSEC Connect
  • Meet the future of the industry at Engineers of Tomorrow and help close the industry skills gap

IFSEC Connect – 1-30 June

Throughout June, IFSEC is inviting the security industry to attend an online marketplace and meetings event – IFSEC Connect. The platform will give attendees the opportunity to connect with new and international suppliers and peers through video calls and messaging. Powered by AI, the Connect 2021 platform supports visitors with intelligent meeting recommendations based on your online profile – or you can simply plan your own meeting schedule directly through the system – no external Zoom email invites will be required!

In addition, attendees will have exclusive access to a host of content from IFSEC and the co-located events. A series of tech-based presentations and thought leadership panel discussions focusing on the industry’s hottest topics include the future of video surveillance and CCTV, access control, intruder detection and protecting cities are scheduled to take place.

Speaking about IFSEC’s virtual presence, Group Director Chris Edwards said: “IFSEC International succeeded in bringing the industry together remotely during 2020 when it was simply impossible to meet face to face. This year, we’ll be building on that success and significantly raising the bar in terms of the content and connections we’ll be delivering for exhibitors and attendees online during IFSEC Connect 2021.”

IFSEC 2021 in-person event

We’re getting ready to welcome security professionals back to Europe’s largest dedicated security event. Taking place at ExCeL London on 12-14 July, IFSEC is your first opportunity to  network and do business face-to-face.

Your safety will be at the heart of IFSEC 2021.

The event is organised by Informa Markets, the world’s leading exhibitions organiser, a business with 450 brands and 5.8million event attendees. Informa has collaborated with association partners, peers, venues, suppliers, contractors and health, government and local authorities to develop industry-wide All Secure standards that raise the bar on safe, hygienic, productive and high-quality organised event experiences. Informa AllSecure is how these standards are being adopted in our business.

All Informa events will be run according to official government and local authority guidance in the first instance, as well as any venue or location-specific regulations. In addition, all Informa events around the world, irrespective of format or location, will follow the ten Informa AllSecure priority commitments.
